We invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to engage in conversations with our diverse group of statewide attendees from the mental health community. Attendees will enjoy inspiring keynote speakers, educational sessions/workshops, a brief awards presentation and a wonderful luncheon. HPA’s convention has been the largest statewide convention for mental health professionals for over 20 years.
In a time when mental health is ever increasing in its importance in healthcare, this is an opportunity for you to share in supporting our community. The HPA convention serves as a great source for continuing education credits, networking, and education for the allied professions, including social workers, psychiatrists, mental health counselors, nurses, marriage and family counselors, students and more. During the two-day convention mental health providers, clinicians and faculty from universities come together to network and collaborate. With the current focus around our state’s mental health services and the popular presentation from The Trust on the latest national workshops, this year’s conference is promised to be the best attended yet. We look forward to seeing you in November.
